Couldn't put this on...I kept refreshing on my laptop...just had a hunch that if I put them on TV I'd jinx them.

And the Blue Jackets lose too...still breathin' for the moment....

Haha! I wasn't posting in the GDT for a bit thinking I was the jinx!

FWIW, Devils 3-0-3 in their last 6.

 

Ok thanks for explaining that to me.

 

ok thanks for posting a nonsensical statement.

Wow- hell of a gutty effort to pull that one out 3 forwards short.

Without Henrique and Elias definitely puts a damper on things.  I think Boucher should get called up.  

 

BTW, Halak should have stopped that shot.  I was completely stunned that shot went in the net.

 

The Devils also have 9 of a possible 12 points in their last 6 games which means they are taking advantage of their light schedule. Philly has only one win in 6 games which means their tough schedule is starting to catch up to them.

Yeah, losing to the Islanders (who to their credit are winning some games lately) and the Sabres in the SO is really taking advantage of a "light schedule". 

 

Let's see what they do in the next four "light" games before making any declarations.

 

And the Flyers had gone 12-3-0 in the 15 games (beating some tough teams in that time) before this 1-3-2 slump.  Think maybe it's simply that they were due for a little valley?

Oh the team has given up. From my vantage point, it looked like forwards were quitting one by one tonight.

You are selling them short a bit.

How so? I'm in total agreement with you DR, guttiest win of the season. Especially after the sh!tbag first period.

Oh..I know. I could have worded it better. I'm saying you are selling them short because I'd consider that they were down 4 forwards from a normal game. 11 forwards dressed and losing Elias, Henrique and Josefson.

Not sure what you mean by this.  I wasn't criticizing the Devils at all.

I guess I need to use emoticons. Was just enjoying people saying that the team had quit at the start of the game, and then you have players, one by one, leave the game after that. Obviously, injury related.

Didn't see this one...any updates on the injuries?

No updates tonight. Elias has looked so awful over the last few games that I was kind of hoping something was bugging him.

 

Really scared about the reinforcements for tomorrow, btw. Good chance it could be Sestito and Gionta.

It was hilarious they showed more resiliency when they were down to half a team than they have for most of the last month.

Devils are 1-0-0 in games where I get interviewed on the jumbotron. Clearly not just a coincidence.

 

Big win tonight. I'm still amazed they pulled it out when they were essentially running two lines out there late. Just a gutty effort all around.

I've been to 8 games this season, and the Devils haven't lost in regulation in any of the games I've been to. I'm amazed by that given what a lousy season its been lol.

Henrique got injured too? jeez. Elias-Clowe-Henrique...seemed to all crash down at once

 

spectacular save at the end there by Schneider. He was great all game. Saw plenty of unstoppable shots and...well, stopped them.

Lmfao, well played. :P

The only games they've lost that I've been to were the home opener (which was one of the 856 shoot-out losses this year) and against Philly in OT. They've won all 6 of the other games I went to.

TG is saying Elias (possible head injury) Henrique (groin) and Josefson (foot/ankle)

 

Elias’ equipment remained in the game locker room after the game, so that seemed to indicate he was not going to accompany the team to Carolina for Saturday night’s game. Henrique’s and Josefson’s lockers were empty. - See more at: http://blogs.northjersey.com/blogs/fireice#sthash.l8rWo15C.dpuf

 

 

fingers crossed it looks like Josefson/Henrique not serious but Elias might have gotten Clowe'd

To this point Cory has faced over 100 more shots than Brodeur and let up 7 less goals. That could be 1-3 more wins if he had more starts this season.

Not picking stuff isn't going to get us anywhere, we'd be in the playoffs easily if we could have won the shootouts.
